5.0 out of 5 stars Long May The Fluffers Keep It Up, 4 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Pandemonium Ensues (Audio CD)
Wow. I bought this and the U2 thing and guess which one i can't stop playing? If there was any justice Glenn and the Fluffers would have had their day at the BBC instead of the Dublin doodlers.
Pandemonium Ensues is Glenn and The Fluffers first full album as a band (where Transatlantic Ping Pong featured some Fluffers tracks) and you can hear the fun they had making it, from the chuckle on the outro of Slaughtered Artist to the rather literal Happy Disposition this is the sort of music we need in these "difficult" times. There is the straight ahead pop of Best Of Times and Black Sheep that would be at home in any decade, then the lush, soulful Still which could have been penned for Al Green. Each band member plays their part in the songwriting department with additional respect due to Lucy (and Stephen) for the string arrangements. Non Fluffer Chris Braide contributes to 3 songs, notably the tribute to Malcolm Hardy on Melancholy Emotion and the paean to kids fleeing the nest that is Little Ships.
The album as a whole is suffused with domestic bliss with the odd bit of introspection. Interest & Love has another swipe at the King of F*** All, wrapped up in a rather gorgeous tune and whilst the likes of the quirky Product and the instrumental (save for Johnny Depp's vocal) Too Close to the Sun probably wouldn't have survived a major label A&R knife, on here they're not out of place and show that Mr T isn't just happy to rest on what he has done in the past and is still exploring new ideas, cos he can.
Glenn is in fine form and shows no signs of losing his melodic mojo. Long may the Fluffers keep it up.
